The award winning Sliding House is designed by London based Architecture studio dRMM. Upon first glance this might look like a typical farm house, but this home is anything but typical. This incredibly dynamic home slides to expand or retract, offering the clients radically variable spaces, shelter, and views. The home can be altered based on season, weather, or simply desire.
[quote]The separated forms are transformed by a 20 ton mobile roof/wall enclosure which traverses the site, creating combinations of enclosure, open-air living and framing of views according to position. This is an autonomous structure; steel, timber, insulation and unstained larch spanning recessed railway tracks. Movement is powered by hidden electric motors on wheels integrated into the wall thickness.[/quote]
